Newbie here following the step-by-step guide for 3.0 configuration. Everything has installed smoothly to this point.
Graylog is running on a Debian 9 VM
Sidecar is being installed on the windows 10 workstation that is hosting the VM. This is for testing/learning.
I have created an input and the sidecar is visible as well within Graylog. However, the collector status says “There are no collectors configured in this sidecar”.
From my understanding, when setting up the sidecar in Windows the “generated” folder should be populated with filebeat and winlogbeat yml files. This is not happening and so the Graylog server isn’t able to manage the collectors.
The only changes I have made that deviate from the tutorial are that I have set tls_skip_verify to true since I am not running this yet.
A few points of confusion in the step by step guide. when creating the beats input it says “start a global Beats input…” however the image shows the global box unchecked.
A few steps later when navigating to the configuration page the image shows four Log Collectors already visible. This is where my setup deviates and shows nothing under Log Collectors.
I’m not sure where the disconnect is between the workstation and the server considering some things are visible. Research online suggests that the issue has to do with tags, however these seems to have gone to the wayside in 3.0.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
